These whole cconch shells, which have been wonderfully carved into a cameo, are quite rare. I assume they were used in the Victorian age to demonstrate how cameos came about. This must have been a particular interest to Victorian tourists exploring Italy.
This beautiful conch shell is a excellent condition with only one tiny chip at the end of the shell. Otherwise, it is in pefect nick.
The cameo itself is a delightful. It features a classical young maiden in profile, with her hair swept up into a ponytail,with the ribbons draped below, while she wears a floral bouquet in her hair. In is a bust cameo, which only displays her draped top. It is quite deeply carved.
It measures 5” long, 4 ¼” wide and 3” high.
A real collector’s item.
